Grandpa

July 24, 2015

It has kind of been a long week.. Let’s see, where to start?. Okay, last Saturday I was told that we were leaving on a trip to go see old friends the following day. My only concern was that I wouldn’t have internet to be able to work. Sunday we did go to church before leaving. And that’s when we got the call. Grandpa was in the hospital with pneumonia. Honestly he’s been in and out of the hospital several times lately, and so I didn’t think too much of it.. Not at that point anyway.

Monday we spent with dear friends. And I was surprised to get pretty good internet there. I got a good bit of work done.

Tuesday we left one place we used to live to another place we used to live. On the drive over Mom was talking on the phone, telling people that Grandpa was very slowly recovering. But he wasn’t talking anymore. Grandpa had always been a talker, and I kind of thought there might be more to his “getting better”… It could have been no more than a couple of hours since we got the call. Grandpa had died. His heart gave out.

Grandpa had dimentia for years and was getting more difficult to take care of. He had a lot of trouble hearing and seeing. He was 89, and in many ways I feel like it was time for him to go on..

Business thinking

July 15, 2015

Some dear friends of ours are going to come visit for the weekend. It is not certain whether they

I’ve been working a lot.. My group doesn’t meet in summer, and I just feel like I don’t have much to do socially lately… I’m about to start my third year as a travel agent, and there is still so much to learn… Unless something very unforeseen happens, I am about to change host agencies. It’s hard to describe a host agency is. It’s kind of like my umbrella company. I will still have my same business name and everything. Though I am not sure I am going to keep my website. I am going to keep working on my traveling blog.. My current host agency has treated me well. However I have to pay a pretty good bit each year. Sadly I’m barely making more than I’m paying.. This other I’m looking into charges a lot less and will be hopefully helping me with marketing.. And I have to pay just once instead of each year.. Hopefully this is going to work out well.

Goings on

July 10, 2015

One of my brothers has bought a house in the Atlanta area , and we are going up there Saturday to be at the house warming party. I’m excited about going no question. I’ll be seeing several of my siblings and their other halves, and of course two nephews and a niece will be there..

I’ve been putting in a lot of time on the business lately.. I enjoy working on my business for sure. But with summer on us, my group isn’t meeting, and my social calendar just feels rather empty of late.. So I’m working a lot and reading..

I’m struggling with my writing.. I have set it a side, at least for a time. I don’t know where I am going with that. I feel like I’ve hit a dead wall. I don’t know what to do about it..

I’m hoping to put together a cousin’s reunion for our family, hopefully sometime this fall. I think my next step is to call my aunt, and see when her family might be available.

I am going to go because I’m tired. But figured I’d need to get this done tonight.

Going there

July 2, 2015

I’ll be honest, this blog is not getting the attention have. I don’t know what to do with it anymore… I’m writing on http://www.travelingsarah59sblog.wordpresss.com five day a week. Usually I write this Friday afternoon, wanting to be free to do whatever I want on Saturday. But I have nothing to do tonight, and figured I might as well do this.. Things are really, really quiet at home, starting to be too quiet for my tastes.. Miss being around my siblings and their families. But anyway…

This decision that was made about marriage last week has been on my mind a lot.. God created marriage even before the fall of man. It was to be one man and one woman for life, and together they were to make a home and raise a family.. I’ve done some reading on all this, and agree that our main concern in all this should be our fellow Christians. We are to hold our fellow Christians accountable.. Sleeping with anyone outside of God’s design for marriage is wrong. And that happens way too frequently among Christians today. And of course, divorce is wrong, and that happens all the time in the church.

The church is wrong on so many ways. And that may never be more true than how we have treated the homosexual community. They need our love and our help. Instead the church seems to want to have nothing to do with homosexuals… The church seems to be able to accept a lot of kinds of sins, but not that.. I’m sorry, but homosexuality is not the unforgivable sin.

I don’t know. Not sure how to wrap this up. I have more questions than answers… Would love known your thoughts on all this.
